According to LG, people fear public speaking even more than cleaning, dentists, or doing taxes

On April 8th LG Electronics put out a press release about their spring cleaning survey, which said that:

“With warmer weather comes the annual ritual of spring cleaning, and many Americans report that cleaning their home is one of their most dreaded activities – second only to public speaking, according to a new national survey of American consumers.”

Then the press release went on to discuss various appliances but never mentioned the specific percentages from an online survey of 1000 people.

Mark Mathis, III checked further and in a July 8th post in his Mark On Marketing Blog
stated that the percentages were:

Public speaking -50%
Cleaning home - 43%

Dentist - 41%
Doing taxes - 28%
